...there may be four or more 4* athletes (including JUCO's) on our committment list come Signing Day? That would be extremely impressive in less than two months.
Definitely have 1-2 JUCOs on the DL. We aren't hiring a Miss JUCO coach for no reason
Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised with half a dozen four star signees.
I'm hoping Santa is going to make ALL of your wishes come true. lol
That would be a very better xmas. However we will need to do much better than that to move up the ladder.
That would get UK up to about 10th in the SEC in recruiting

10th in the SEC is FAAAAAARRRRR better then where we r right now!!!!!
^^^I agree right now if we sniff the top 10 in the SEC we are looking a recruiting class that is near the top 25 within the whole nation. Right now I am impressed that 4* players are now wanting to visit our campus and take time to listen to our new coaches. Now all we got to do is sign them. Come on Stoops bring 'em home!
Go Big Blue
I think we will be very happy with the kids the current staff brings in. Going to be some good surprises on NSD.
UPS 4 all of yas!!
4to6 4stars...some 3 stars like Estime and Ernest Suttles that are better than most 4's...coming off a 2-10 year..this would be HUGE..imagine when Stoops gets us bowling and upsets a couple top 10 teams? 2014 could be the best class in UK history.
Recruiting is an I exact science. While there is a big difference between the first three ranked SEC classes and whose ranked tenth, there isn't a big difference between the middle three ranked teams and whose ranked tenth. I'd take tenth to start with.
If UK can consitently recruit 6-12 4 stars and the rest high quality 3 star players we will be able to compete. Some of the high 3 stars are actually better than many 4 and even 5 star guys for some reason they don't grade out by the recruiting services as well. I think our 3 star guys from here on out will have double digit BCS offers or be local guys that the staff really likes. So far, the recruiting interest has been great. Thanks for the all the information from everyone.
Like our good friend JDrum has said many times over the last couple of years, in order for UK to dig itself out of this mess, they must land classes ranked in the Top 35 range for a number of years in a row.
I look for us to sign multiple juco d-linemen. probably 2 de's and one dt.
I also look for us to sign 1-2 juco interior offensive linemen.
I look for us to sign a juco safety or two.
I look for us to pursue juco WR's (maybe not as likely since true frosh juco wr's can contribute pretty quick).
Holy cow! Consistently? That would be a top 10-12 ranked team every single yr. The only teams that can do this consistently are the teams with the most tradition.....Michigan, LSU, Bama, USC, Florida, UGA, etc.
We may be able to get a class like this occasionally, but consistently? We'd have to win a NC or win 10+ games a yr for 20 yrs before we'd have enough tradition to make this happen. I like setting goals high, but wow?
We'd be able to compete with consistently landing classes in the top 25.....basically 4-5 four star players (or higher) and the rest 3 stars.

7 Four Star and 18 3 stars would put us at 82 total stars or about 42 in the rankings. The top guys are getting 1-2 5 Star, 10-15 4 star, and few 3 stars. I think we need to be in the Top 25 nationally to compete. That is where 6-12 fours per year get you.
I think you need to brush up on your research. Go to 247's rankings (site listed below).....Scouts, ESPN's, Rivals. Go to all of them. I think you are off the mark with your estimates.
Having 5-8 four star players or higher (and the rest 3 stars) gets you ranked around 15-20 range (or sometimes higher) every single yr. There are often teams in the top 5 that don't have a dozen players over a 4 star.
Keep in mind that your player rating (0-100) for your 3 star player is going to raise as well.....so your team avg is going to be well above 82
In order to create the most comprehensive Team Recruiting Ranking without any notion of bias, 247Sports Team Recruiting Ranking is solely based on the 247Composite Rating.

I am just hoping we can get a full class this year. You can't just talk it done, proof is in the pudding.
Would definitely think that's the case.
